The Farm Now Will Be Able to Expand

In this time of stress and confusion, I wanted to share a heartwarming story that was made possible by you, our customers.  As I have said, one of our core missions is to help small farms grow, prosper and, if possible, convert to biodynamics.  We just received word this week that Red Range Farm in Pennsylvania has received its official Demeter certification, meaning, it is now a recognized biodynamic farm.

My son Joe has been working with the farmers over the past year to help them get to this point, which includes not only the Demeter certification but also the ability to expand their growing capacity.  Last year they grew the peppers for our Pepper Salt, and Threefold Blend (Spicy), and honey nut squash for our Winter Squash Powder.   Their expanded growing capacity will allow them to be one of our primary growers as we continue our quest to have as many of our vegetables as possible sourced from small, biodynamic farms. 

You have helped make this achievement possible. Through purchasing our powders, you have helped this farm flourish.  For me, this outcome exemplifies the spirit of cooperation and renewal that will carry us forward in the creation of the new world that is emerging.  

In health and gratitude,

Tom Cowan, M.D.

Perhaps more importantly, focusing on beauty for most people will help to make the garden more inviting and enjoyable in addition to more productive.

Early September in Maine is a beautiful time of year. The summer heat and humidity has started to give way to a crisp and clean autumn warmth. The farmer’s markets are abuzz all over the area with profusion and variety. At this point our freezer is about a third full with tomato sauce, hot sauce, and a few other small batch things that will remind us of the harvest the previous year and give us something to look forward to as we look forward.

These Animal Foods Are Essential for Optimal Health

By Tom Cowan, M.D.

I get asked a lot whether it is important to include meat in one’s diet. Unfortunately, this is the wrong question and will likely lead you astray. The correct question is whether it’s important to include animal products of some form in one’s diet. The unambiguous answer is “yes.” 

The clearest epidemiological studies ever done on humans were done by Weston Price. His approach was simple and straightforward: He looked around the world for people with perfect teeth and perfect health. He found 14 such groups, on all continents, in all races.
